3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden body with a robust tan head that leaves nice lacing. Complex nose with grapefruit and pine jumping out, mellowing to some subtle malty sweetness. Fairly full mouthfeel with decent carbonation. The flavor, much like the aroma, is multi-layered. Caramel and biscuit sweetness give way to some sour citrus and a touch of bitter grapefruit. The aftertaste is appropriately bitter. A very nice American Pale Ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy orange colour, and with a creamy head. Aroma of berries, apricot, sweet malt, caramel and some lime and spices. Sweet flavour as well with more caramel, flowers, dried fruit and grassy hops.
Has a slick mouth feel, and a balanced bitterness. A pretty malty and fruity APA with a pleasant bitterness in the end.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
En jarra grande. Color cobre claro. Espuma blanca no demsiado persitente, aroma a lupulo algo citrico no muy afrutado, malta y algo a levadura. En boca amargor medio, algo de dulzor, pero bajo, y un final a lupulo batante persistente y amargo...duradero. Una cerveza sin grandes sorpresas pero ningun defetecto. Me gusta....no es un cervezote pero es rica y recomendable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Im Glas hell, ordentlicher Schaum, tolles Aroma, Citrus und Orange. Im Trunk sehr weich, verhältnismäßig mild, Citrus, im Abgang ganz leicht bitter. Lecker, aber mir nicht kantig genug. Gut zum Wegtrinken.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL bottle from Beer Cartel BB 05/2016
Pale gold body, slight haze, holds a tight white head.
Decent intensity nose; pine, grapefruit rind, grassy hops, touch of peach & toasty sort of malt.
Medium body, quite dry textually, moderate slightly creamy carbonation.
Starts with a touch of toasty, light caramel sweetness, palate continues with grassy, woody hops, touch of peach & citrus rind, drying out with a firm bitterness.
Reasonable APA, seems a touch different from most, textually perhaps? Different yeast perhaps? Unique in a sense, lacking the complexity of better examples though.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
DATE TASTED: January 16, 2015... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint ... OCCASION: a good week done... APPEARANCE: a storm of effervescent bubbles whirl violently below an absolute dreamy cloud of thick white head; hazy orange amber in color; lacing is ribbed and substantial... AROMA: sharp orange peel; some sugarlike cookie, vanilla, grapefruit and spring flowers... PALATE: creamy at the lips; slight pings of sourness at the teeth; effervescent but swift to the throat; light and mega-sessionable ...TASTE: citric flavors of grapefruit and lilac, orange and vanilla make this already a winner; the malt settles nicely, providing balance...OVERALL: why so long to revisit this most perfect example of the genre--as refreshing and flavorful as a pale ale can be...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 05.09.14.
A: 1 finger head with an aggressive pour. Crystal clear orange.
S: Biscuity malt, citrus.
T: Caramel is first, then sweet citrus. Bitterness on the back end, then lingering sweetness again.
O: This one is a classic IPA. It’s not at all hop heavy in comparison to the IPAs of today. It’s simply subtle and refreshing. The malt seemed more dominant than the hops, which is weird now, but it comes from a different time. It was a great gateway into IPAs for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Pours with a clear orange colour, big long lasting rocky white head. Aroma is medium malty, medium hoppy, with lots of hoppy notes: hops in this beer seem to have been used mainly for their aromas, more than for their bitterness; the results are hints of flowers, resin, grass and hay; very interesting, even though it might be balanced a little bit better. Taste is little to medium sweet, little to medium bitter, slightly sour, slightly salty. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.
